I was warned,
So many times to stay away.
And those words still linger.
The race around my mind
And now I stand in this wilderness.
Engulfed by depression and worry.
Searching for a glimpse of light.
Because the only light I see
I can’t touch.
It twinkles way beyond my reach.
And I just lay there with my hand raised high.
Aiming for something that glitters.
I open my eyes and pretend that I am fine.
Yet broken inside.
Because I was warned but never listened.
